- all tracks have been speed corrected, they were running just a little too fast.
- d1to1, swapped channels for the first 44 seconds, cleaned up dropouts 0:44 - 0:47 by patching in from
opposite channel and adjusting level and removed click at 1:42
- d1t02, repaired small dropout at 4:47
- d1t05, removed 2 pops 2 at 0:26
- d1t08, repaired two small dropouts at 3:02
- d2t01, patched with SBD: MC > DAT > CDR (shnid 5490) for first 33 seconds (eq'd so that it is a closer match)
- d2t07, cleaned a bad spot 44:49 - 44:50
- some of the crowd between d2t09-d2t10 and d2t10-d2t11 is missing
- the whole show has been re-tracked

- remastered with iZotope Ozone and Waves Z-Noise


This is definitely one for the Phil fans. Thanks are due to BoldCaptain & SBDJohnny, for putting this very good recording into circulation.

(1) Weir says "We got amplifiers dropping off like flies, in the heat" and "Serves us right for trying to play this

(2) Bill Graham says "Music to wake up with and music to go to sleep with and music to spend the day with.
There is really nothing like the Grateful Dead"

Although not included in this recording, Lesh said to the crowd "Settle down and spread, it's breakfast in bed with the Grateful Dead

The U.S. Festival was the brainchild of Apple Computer co-founder, Steve Wozniak. When he coudn't find a suitable venue, he pulled out his chequebook and paid for one to be built!

The Dead weren't originally scheduled to play but Bill Graham had other ideas. Consequently, they went on stage at 9:30 a.m, hence the comments above.

The Glen Helen Regional Park served a real nice Truckin' breakfast that day with a funky Shakedown Street, extra Sugaree and a whole lot of Satisfaction! Thank you band, road crew, crowd, festival organisers, and all you bootiful people, listening out there!

Subject: The First (of two) US Festivals !!!
04/16/12 The first (of two) Steve Wozniak (Apple Computer co-founder) western Woodstock-inspired major rock festivals with an impressive band line-up and production venue! The Grateful Dead had the rise and shine Sunday breakfast time-slot. Bill Graham and all of the bands were flown in via helicopter ... There has to be a video/films somewhere that document these enormous events ~ of which offered three, on-stage, live cam viewing screens that were huge. Unless I'm mistaken, the state-of-the-art sound system was all designed by the Grateful Dead!

very fun, up-tempo show.

bobby sings " ever since she went and had a sex change" instead of "living on reds, vitamin c, and cocaine"

Subject: Interesting, different, good mood on this one...
The extra wah-wah on Shakedown is great. The vocals come through fabulous! I am assuming this is an outdoor concert on a pretty day from the sound; everybody sounds like they feel good, it's snappy and extra tight. I really like this show, it has a singular feel to it, jazzy like, hard to pin down.... try it, you'll like it....

Subject: One for the Phil fans?
OK. I know what you're saying but, "what happened to Phil's mid's"? There's a huge amount of sub bass here but the rest of his rig is m.i.a..

Could be the amplifiers melting in the noonday sun I guess. It's definitely not on this end. My rig's fine and I don't have a problem with heat in western Humboldt County.
